Hillary Vincent who is the project manager of popular gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, has debunked widely published reports that the late singer had slumped in his Lekki, Lagos, residence on Friday morning, November 25, 2022.
Africa Today News, New York reports that many media outlets had earlier reported that after he allegedly slumped, he was rushed to the hospital where he was reportedly pronounced dead on arrival.
However, while speaking in an interview with newsmen on Sunday, Vincent said, ‘It is not true that Sammie slumped and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will set the records straight. But, I can tell you authoritatively that he did not slump. Rather, he just did not wake up from his sleep.
‘As regards the funeral arrangements, the details will be made known by the family. But right now, they are still in grief and mourning the departed singer.’

Na only You was another popular song which was contained in the album No More Drama. The album featured other gospel singers such as Kefee, Essence, Ige Samsong, and Soji Isreal.
Another of his songs, Sing Hallelujah, was released in 2019, but it has continued to make waves, especially in gospel circles.
In 2020, he released Chukwu Ebube, a contemporary afrocentric worship that featured Micheal Stuckey.
